i am calling them pretty large tag cards.
on a summer edition of my craft channel by heidi swapp, she shared a most gorgeous card. a tag card. a pretty large tag card. i swooned big time over that card.
then even more recently i was able to actually see, feel, and touch that card...
and i knew i had to take that inspiration and play around with it.
thus was born my version of a pretty large tag card.

these  cards are pretty big...
about 5x7 if not larger.
some i have made are six inches wide.

what i really really love about these tag cards is the layers of differing patterns and texture and color.
although i am a thematic kinda girl, and my color schemes stay themed...
i still had fun using differing shades of the same color. and that is what i think gives these tag cards their pop.

you may or may not see this polka dot stencil showing up on all or a few of these tags i will share with you this week. because i love it!!! the polkas just make me happy. especially with acrylic paint used on the stencil.
did i say i loved it?

this tag card has lots of pockets and places to slip sentiments throughout.
sort of a treasure hunt for the recipient.
and that is just where this card is headed. to a very special friend who took very good care of me recently,
a regular card just wouldn't do...
a pretty larger than normal card and sentiment i felt was in order.

so...what say you?
are you up to the challenge of pulling your favorite patterns and textures and colors together to make a pretty large tag card?
if you do, please link me up...i would love to see what you.

i will be back with more of these this week.

    Can I ask?

    The sentiment on the tiny tag, is it a stamp or rubons??

    1. if you are referring to the 'fabulous', it is a stamp. from Heidi Swapp/Pink Paislee.
